Those days when you want to look like you’ve put effort into your outfit, but not feel like you’re wearing too much effort. This is that outfit for me. Sneakers, stretchy high waisted pants, and a t-shirt, yes please! Besides the comfort factor, there’s a urban chic feel to this outfit that I have really been digging lately. I think its the combination of classic Adidas with dressy cropped trousers that give a nice contrast.
The scalloped detail on the trousers adds a nice touch. It’s these kind of small details that really elevate basic pieces, something that makes you take a second look. When I tried on these trousers in Club Monaco I was pleasantly surprised by the fit and quality of the fabric. I’m usually at the upper end of standard sizing, so it can be a struggle to find pants/jeans that fit well. Due to the thick, heavy, stretchy fabric and the impeccable tailoring with the darts on the back (not pictured), these pants not only fit but are flattering as well!
Then there’s the funk factor that the zodiac t-shirt brings with its bright yellow and sequined parrots. Though I’m not usually a bird-on-clothing kind of person, I can roll with a pair of beaded/sequined parrots. (It probably helps that these parrots remind me of Disneyland’s Tikki Room.)
The bag is a Coach classic in my favorite bag combination of black leather and gold hardware. I’m holding it by the top handle, but it is essentially a cross-body style. The strap is detachable, and the lock rotates open and closed. The inside is pretty basic, just a zipped pocket and a flap pocket in the front. It holds a decent amount, usually enough for a day out, but probably not enough for a work bag.
The jacket is a bomber style by the brand Noisy May (via Asos). It’s so light-weight and very warm. The only downside is the pockets are rather shallow.
